With the launch of the novel Aeolus Doppler Wind Lidar mission in 2018, a wealth of direct wind and atmospheric backscatter profile observations have become available across the globe in the troposphere and lower stratosphere. This unique data set is revealing new information on atmospheric dynamics, clouds and aerosol optical properties to the benefit of various application areas. This includes Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), climate modelling, Global Circulation Model dynamics and parameterized processes, e.g., stratosphere-troposphere interaction and atmospheric waves, land and ocean drag, convection, as well as air quality monitoring and air pollution transport. In the second year of the mission an important milestone was reached with the implementation and deployment of a very effective wind bias correction, much improving the wind product quality. This milestone initiated the public release of the Aeolus NRT (Near Real Time) wind products in May 2020, allowing all NWP centers to use Aeolus winds for their daily weather forecasts. It also marked the kick-off of scientific activities addressing the intended application areas and to develop further mission products.
In this session, we aim at discussing results using the Aeolus data for application in meteorology, atmospheric and Earth science process studies, air quality and climate studies, along with data product updates, their validation and reprocessing. Topics can cover Aeolus observation interpretation, atmospheric model diagnostics, model parameterizations, data assimilation experiments and many more. We welcome all presentations on the scientific analysis of Aeolus mission data, including inter-comparisons to independent measurements or atmospheric models, as well as on other data exploitation activities.
